't want to go abroad. retreat is idea and policy of reseeding. with the nomination of john kerry and chuck hagel is president obama sending a chamberlain message? >> i think charles is right. he is sending the message. these are care-takers and people who will keep the foreign policy off his desk. some people say is part of the foreign policy part. climate change, and we know kerry will be deeply invested in. that has a real policy and dollars and cents. the rest is tabulum. the cabinet pointments are people to allow him to focus on this domesticbe transformation. >> bret: a leap forward for tomorrow. secretary clinton testifying on benghazi. she will testify in the morning on the senate side and afternoonbe in the house. this should be high drama when it comes to congress. asking and answering. the republicans are forecasting that. >> i don't know that they will be surprises in a lot of new revelations from the testimony. >> bret: charles? >> i think they will ask what did you know and when did you know it? where were you during the attackbe? what did the president say? who were the embas
broadly, on national security, we will enter the beginning of confirmation hearings for john kerry as secretary of state, chuck hagel as secretary of defense. consideration of our military strategy, our military spending, how we project american power as we complete a winding down of the war in afghanistan. it is really going to be the end of a post-9/11 period in national security policy, with the policy going for it from there still unsettled. guest: the will still be a focus on the issues of national security, what just happened in algeria, the issue of al qaeda not being as weak a forceful as president obama campaign on. i think republicans will point that out. if we lost american lives again last week. so what are we doing to keep al qaeda at bay? that will be part of the discussion during the confirmation hearings and certainly with mrs. clinton's appearance tomorrow. host: on the issue of foreign policy, what will be president obama's legacy? where will the focus in his second term? guest: looking back over the first term, he did wind down the war in iraq. he's in the proces
of the things that the senate will be doing over the next weeks and months is the confirmations, and john kerry's hearing for secretary of state to be later this month and thought to be a shoo-in, but how realistic to be an opportunity for republicans to air grievances about the president's foreign policy? >> geared more towards chuck hagel ironically, because senator ker are ri iry is respe the democratic and the republican side and he has the credentials so they will hold the fire for chuck hagel who is going to be secretary of defense. >> and you said that chuck hagel brings up the next topic, the conservative group america future fund, and they have produced a tv spot blasting chuck hagel and his supporter senator chuck schumer that is going to air on cable outlets and this is a look at a it and the left is not happy with hagel either and they have a use your mandate saying that he is a bad choice for women and gays and support for israel. what is chuck hagel's confirmation hearing going to look like? >> this is going to be the opportunity for republicans who were obviously unhappy with the
of state, john kerry, and chuck hagel, which he has gone a lot of flak for it, to the secretary of defense? >> those are promising choices. john kerry may finally liberate himself with a push from chuck a goal. they are going to have to take on the military-industrial complex and reduce those mass of weapons systems that were designed for a soviet-peristyle hostility like the f-22 and nuclear subs. they're going have to cut the military budget down from its $800 billion, and get out of afghanistan and iraq. and whether they have the chemistry and the political fortitude to do so, it remains to be seen. but i think they are a better choice than their predecessors. i think john kerry will be better than hillary clinton, who had to be macho all the time. and panetta, chuck hagel will be better than panetta, who was kind of a fill in. and spent weekends back in california where he really wants to retire. there is a little promise there. but again, it requires the resurgence of mass demonstrations in washington this spring to develop a convergent policy from the militarization of foreign-policy
. i think he's put together potentially a very good team. i think kerry and hagel and brennan and in a curious way now as the presidential adviser, but his very much interest in affairs with a team that's going to focus more on the problems on the ground. that is to say basic fundamental strategic challenges that are confronting us. mrs. clinton was terrific. i like her. i respect her. she was enormously energetic. but she had more of a visionary agenda, global warming, global problems, suffering, injustice, jends jendser gender issues, rheau is rights. >> all extremely important. >> but if we don't deal with the problems confronting us right now, we'll never get to dealing with the big problems in the end. so i am hoping that this new team will really address serious problems that obama didn't finish addressing. >> the theory of the case for this new team now because the reality is that we're going through a transition into a post-superpower world. we are still a superpow er, but there comes a point where we're not. and if you study obama and look at him, he wants to avoid wa
